Misconduct

Postgame: Red Wings @ Predators - 3/10

Well, by my count the Red Wings are now 3-9 in their twelve total Saturday games in Nashville on no rest. Someone let me know if FSD uses that number, too.

I want to complain about this one 'cause it feels like the Wings were close enough to make something happen tonight, but really there wasn't any one thing.

I don't like how Kyle Quincey played the two-on-one that turned into Nashville's opening goal but Drew Miller responded almost immediately so it doesn't really matter. I don't like the interference penalty on Brad Stuart that gave the Predators the power play on which they scored the GWG, but Ian White really needed to cut off that pass whether the team was shorthanded or not.

A couple miscues, a couple goals against. That's why you can't make mistakes against a team like the Predators. They're too efficient to give chances like that.

In the offensive end, the Wings blew their chances. The power play was better than it's been in awhile but until they get a goal with the extra man, those are just missed opportunities.

Filppula with the puck at the side of the net in the closing minute? Gotta get that up and in. Hard to knock how he's been playing, though, especially since he hasn't been the guy called on for those clutch goals before.

Joey MacDonald? Stupid college chants be damned, he kept the Wings in it.

So lots of good things tonight, just not the outcome, which hurts worse 'cause the Blues are going to get their points against Columbus and extend the division lead.

It's an important Central Division matchup in Nashville tonight, as the Red Wings visit the Predators.

The Wings sit six points up on the Predators in the standings, with Nashville having a game in hand. Meanwhile, Detroit is two points back of the St. Louis Blues for the division, conference and league lead.

Detroit is still reeling from injuries but will get Justin Abdelkader back after missing a game with the flu. Joakim Andersson has been sent back to Grand Rapids with Abdelkader returning to the lineup.

Game time is 8:00 PM on FSD.

Oh, right, whistles. Ugh.

Quincey played the two-on-one horribly but Drew Miller doesn't care, evens it right back up.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/10/2012 at 8:25 PM

 

And Miller says we will take that one back!

Nice hit from behind Weber...

Kronner needs to line him up.

Great...

If the Preds are going to take advantage of their power plays, Wings' need their own to wake up. If they ever get a chance with it, of course.

I think the ice is bad. Awful lot of guys falling down.

Ken and Mick just mentioned the stats I dug up about the Wings on the road in Nashville on Saturdays on no rest. Did someone else do that research, too, or did they just take my numbers and run with it?

First period thoughts:

Stay out of the box.

That is all!

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 8:45 PM

 

Yeah, can't give the Preds as many chances as they got in the first. And the usual "need more shoot."

FSN Detroit is having technical difficulties.

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:10 PM

 

J Mac is earning his pay tonight. That means the D is failing.

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:15 PM

 

So what kind of power play will this be?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/10/2012 at 9:28 PM

 

This needs to count!

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:29 PM

 

Finally! Homer draws one!

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:31 PM

 

Well sh*t... Can we get one on the PP?

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:32 PM

 

Second period thoughts:

Beat Rinne in the third

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:38 PM

 

No goals, but not a horrible power play. A good sign.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/10/2012 at 9:38 PM

 

The biggest thing that bothers me about the last few games is this will be life post Lidstrom. Scary thought.

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 9:57 PM

 

Crap

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 10:05 PM

 

Well, there we go, another PPG for Nashville. And that was bullsh*t interference anyway.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/10/2012 at 10:05 PM

 

Can we get one PP goal?

Posted by SYfanSD on 3/10/2012 at 10:23 PM

 

Jesus, Abs. Gritty.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/10/2012 at 10:25 PM

 

Damnit! It's over
